Principal’s Corner

Dear Switzer families,

I wanted to take another opportunity to thank teachers, staff, parents and students for an amazing year! This was a school year we will never forget. I wanted to send out a couple of updates as we cruise into summer:

  1. Your child’s 2nd semester report card will be sent to you at the end of the day, Friday, June19, 2020. The report card will be sent electronically to all parents that signed up for a secure Unified Powerschool account.
  2. The school office will be closing June, 24 and will open August 4. If you need anything please email
  3. Art to Remember, spring pictures and yearbooks are not in yet. We anticipate distributing them at the beginning of the 2020-21 school year. We will get them to our 6th graders at Malow.
  4. What does next year look like? Great question. The governor will be releasing guidelines on June 30. As a school district, we have been meeting, researching and brainstorming for months. Once our plan is finalized, we will reach out to you.

Enjoy your summer!

Jacob Palmer

March Is Reading Month

Academic Blitz”Reading is Awesome” is the 2017 March is Reading month theme at Switzer. We started our reading month with our reading assembly today. Information has been sent home but is also included in this newsletter. Students will be bringing home their packet with reading goals and a log sheets to be turned in on Mondays, starting March 13. Students who meet their goals and turn in their log sheets will be awarded tickets/legos and be entered into drawings for access passes to the Lego Garage or Slurpees. If we hit our school goal we will have a special visit from our “lego rescue heros” from the police, fire and homeland security. Don’t forget family reading night planned for March 24, at 6:30pm. All prizes and events have been funded by our supportive PTO and thank you Switzer reading committee for your hard work and great ideas!
